Celebrating the Queen's birthday with lilac and tortillas

Here's some lilac from the back garden. There is so much of this stuff growing wild in Georgetown. On some side roads, you can walk down the road and smell it in the air for most of the walk.

And below are some corn tortillas. Just an experiment that worked well. 1 cup masa flour (fine corn flour presoaked in lime water), 3/4 cup water (1/2 cup cold + 1/4 cup hot), mixed for about 2 minutes squeezing it between my fingers. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and then use a tortilla press to press a ball into a flat shape. Cook on a pre-heated double-burner cast iron griddle for 1-2 minutes per side (start on one half of the griddle, finish on the other half and start the next one).
